‘THE PRESENCE OF LOVE’: A POETIC ENGLISH COUNTRYSIDE ROMANCE

May 21, 2022 3 Comments

Familiar faces topline this TV film and mostly, The Presence of Love is not a favorite, but is a lovely kind of rustic romance.

The Presence of Love (2022) Hallmark TV Film Review

Trying hard to achieve her professional goals is what Joselyn Lambert (Eloise Mumford) is working towards. She loves her work as a college professor and the joy of helping her students learn. But when her research paper is rejected and with it, possibly, her chance at tenure, she has to rethink everything. Given two weeks to resubmit, she takes an unexpected trip to Cornwell, a trip her mother planned for her a year earlier prior to her death.

The trip is not only perfect timing to help Joss with her work but also to visit the farm her mother grew up at. While there she meets Daniel (Julian Morris) the co-owner of the farm that is now part bed and breakfast. Struggling to make some updates to the farm against the judgement of his mother (Samantha Bond) and raising a daughter (Amy Sharp) solo. As she immerses herself in the world, Joss tries to find what will inspire her work.

FILM REVIEW | ‘THE SAPPHIRES’: AN EMOTIONAL DRAMA ABOUT FOLLOWING A DREAM

Moving further and further away from their mysteries, The Presence of Love is another of their movies that’s drama rather than mystery. The film is a gentle story that will certainly be emotional for viewers. There’s moments that will touch hearts and bring a tear and for others, this will be something you won’t want to see for those very reasons. Still all that to say I think some of the emotional moments are “off” (how the actors play it). Then there’s the themes of anxiety and how that affects a character.

I do just also have to add, did anyone else get North & South vibes from that end scene? All that to say, the film is really quite pretty and there’s lots of beautiful, rustic scenery. I love that about it. Everything is just so pretty to look at. Same as you can say about anything from the network, there’s plenty to enjoy.

Content: nothing to note that’s not the norm of a TV-G rating. However, there is themes of death/grief, anxiety and dyslexia, all of which makes the film more serious rather than lighthearted.

    I love that Hallmark has been filming on location in European locations lately. It’s fun to experience some armchair travel. Since Christmas With Holly is one of my long time favorite Hallmark films, I will always watch any film with Eloise Mumford.

      YES! SO DO I, Brittaney. Helps SO much in capturing the atmosphere (when on location).

      Ditto. I adore “Christmas with Holly.” One of Hallmark Hall of Fame’s best Christmas movies I think! :)
